I'm lookin at picking up a 1995 F-150 supercab short box 4x4 for dirt cheap. Has a broken FR coil spring. I was thinkin of replacing both front springs with something to give it a little lift, maybe level out the stance a bit.

How much of a lift spring can I put in the front, without having to worry about new shocks and radius arms? I was thinking about 2"? Where could I find such springs?

levelling kit...most companies will have them, give you springs and adjustable camber bushings. Most people have been able to get 2-2.5" of lift without running drops for everything and keeping the camber right.

I used a set of coils off an 80s 2wd F250 crewcab long box on my 95 Bronco. It lifted it about 1.5inchs or so. I cleared 33s no prob.
